Your Health Matters

During the past few weeks, news about the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) has been prevalent in the media. Although the number of confirmed cases in the United States remains low and there are no current cases in Delaware, health issues of this type can generate anxiety, worry and concerns. We want you to know the health and safety of our employees and members are our top priority.

As with any newly emerging infectious disease, knowledge evolves with time and recommendations are changing rapidly. We are closely monitoring information from public health officials and will continue to follow their prevention guidelines to help keep our facilities clean and community safe. We’ve educated our staff and are introducing additional hygiene and cleaning practices with hospital-grade cleaners as an extra precaution.
We encourage all members to follow these best practices to help keep yourself and others healthy:

  • Stay home when you are sick
  • Wash hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands
  • Avoid close contact with people who are ill
  • Cover your mouth and nose when you cough and sneeze
  • Clean and disinfect surfaces frequently touched
  • Maintain a healthy lifestyle through proper hydration, diet, rest and exercise
